Date: Monday, March 11th, 2024

Time: 1PM- 3:30PM

Location: 312 Main Street, Vancouver (Access from Cordova Street)

About the workshop: In groups of two (you and one partner), experience the art of chocolate making. We take you on a knowledge-journey from cacao farms and the fermentation process, winnowing, husking, through all that is required for the bean to be processed into chocolate.

We’ll answer questions such as:

  • What is the difference between craft chocolate and commercial chocolate?
  • Why does the origin of the beans matter?
  • What is light roast cacao?
  • How does tempering work and why is it necessary?

Each person gets to sample eight different chocolate flavours on site, including the main three cacao variants Criollo, Forastero, and Trinitario. We will focus on 75% dark chocolate sweetened with coconut sugar. From this base, you can choose your own flavour and take home three, custom 45g bars. The workshop is fun and educational and will blow your chocolate mind in many ways!
